Before my current desk setup, I had a small, 31.5″ foldable desk tucked into a little corner of my bedroom (see this Instagram highlight for more on that setup!), so even though I have a lot more space now, I’m still in a New York City 1-bedroom… which means this desk setup is also tucked into a corner in my bedroom! No matter how much or how little space you have, small space desk tips can help you stay organized and your desk area look neat. Here are my top tips for organizing in a small space!
I’m so excited to finally share my desk walkthrough! I moved last year and have spent a lot of time setting up my desk space. While I definitely have a little more room than I did in my previous apartment, I still need to maximize storage space! It can be really difficult to create a minimal desk setup in a smaller space, so I hope this walkthrough helps give you some inspiration on how you might organize your own workspace, too.
If you’re like me and averse to cutting pages in your bullet journal (eek), but always wanted to try a “Dutch door” spread, this super easy faux method might be just the ticket—no scissors required!
It’s time to look back at February! This is part of a series where I look back at the spreads for a month and reflect on why I made the adjustments I did and reflect on what’s working and what wasn’t. We’re talking functionality and we’re talking design, so grab your bujo and let’s get inspired!
One of my favorite things about my bullet journal is that I can change it up from week to week—whether that’s adding doodles or simplifying, or just tweaking tiny parts of different modules to make spreads as usable as possible. This is a new series where I look back at the spreads for a month and reflect on why I made the adjustments I did and reflect on what’s working and what wasn’t. If you’re interested in digging deep into design choices that can support productivity, read on!
I might be a little late, but how about a look at my 2022 planner lineup? I did this a couple years ago and I’ve pared down a little in some ways and added more in others (isn’t it always that way!?). So let’s dive in!
One of the things I started doing in my 2022 bullet journal was creating dashboards, both monthly and weekly! I’ve been loving having dashboards to keep track of things throughout the week.
I recently was asked to write a guest post on the Official Bullet Journal blog (!). Reflecting on how to use self-care to maintain habits and routines, this post walks through the system I’ve developed to support myself, as well as lots of tools and resources to help you devise your own self-care based productivity routine. I’m excited to hear what you think! Here’s a little excerpt…
Too often, we can get caught up in tracking a million little things, from water intake to hours of sleep, and the process turns into something that feels weighty and full of pressure. If this is you, you aren’t alone! We’re so used to habits, new year’s resolutions, and other self-betterment techniques that feel punishing and use negative thinking as a way of finding motivation. I don’t know about you, but the habits I tried to work on because I felt I “had to” do them never stuck; instead they felt forced.
But the spirit of Bullet Journaling, where we’re about progress over perfection, has been a great way to help me rethink my habits, and I hope it can help you too. Being more reflective, gentle, and positive can make all the difference in keeping up with habits and building routine—here are some of my favorite tools and techniques to infuse that spirit into your own process and Bullet Journal…

I’m trying a new series on my blog reflecting on my different spread ideas and layouts! I’ve been feeling uninspired on the Instagram platform, so I hope experimenting by posting my spreads here on my blog instead might reinvigorate me creatively, go into more depth about my spreads and thought process, and most importantly, chat with you all more easily! I’ve really missed being able to talk with you all about bullet journaling, so hopefully this will be a way to make that happen more easily.
Here’s a highly requested blog post on all of my favorite tips and tricks for using fonts in your bullet journal!
